As you first approach it, the monument has been eroded to an extent that it looks almost like a massive rock formation.

Visitors approach it from the south gate, but the main entrance was the east gate, a colonaded gateway (now containing this buddha) which also provides a slightly more harmonious view of the monument as a whole.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
